Lifestyle Businesses are generally located in one of Australia’s tourist regions. They allow owners the enviable lifestyle that comes with living and working in areas of natural beauty. The business would provide the owner with a level of income and flexibility that suits the life they want to live. Perfect for choosing family over work and striking that coveted work, life balance. Some businesses may come with a residence on-site or owners may choose to live locally in the towns and villages surrounding their business.
Different types of Lifestyle Businesses include: bed & breakfasts, cottages and retreats; motels and boutique hotels; caravan parks; boutique wineries; hobby and small farms; restaurants and cafes; retail and gourmet produce stores; tourism attractions and tourist activities.
A Lifestyle Property is an investment property in a tourist area that the owner puts on the holiday rental market. They may then manage the property themselves or employ the services of holiday rental management company to do this for them. In the case of holiday apartment complexes this would be handled by the apartment managers that hold the management rights.
Let's start with what we're not. We are not an agent or a broker. These are the people who work hard to get qualified buyers to your door and negotiate on your behalf. We do not make money from commissions but from marketing and advertising. We work with agents and business owners to help market their businesses or properties to prospective buyers across the globe.
We understand the buying and selling process. We have purchased and sold a lifestyle business and understand that it can take a lot of patience. We will be providing potential buyers with access to research and statistics, advice on company and business structure, finance options, changes in legislation, suppliers and anything else that can prepare them to make a qualified offer when they find the business that suits them.
Our aim is to become the place where buyers look for lifestyle businesses and properties on the market in Australia. Whether it's buyers looking to change their lives or investors wanting to add to their portfolio, they all have one thing in common; they are looking for a business or property just like yours. Tell your agent that you would like to list on Lifestyle Businesses Australia.
Lifestyle Business Australia is now my go to website for industry news and changes to small business legislation that affect me. I also looking forward to keeping an eye on what businesses in the accommodation sector come onto the market in case that little gem pops up that I can add to my portfolio.
Investors looking to buy properties for the holiday rental market always ask me where they should look. I'm now going to send them straight to Lifestyle Businesses Australia as I know that the properties listed there will be appropriate for this market and in tourist locations to guarantee high turnover.
Our business was on the market for several years before finally selling. We found that potential buyers were not in a position to make an offer as they weren't prepared from a business and finance point of view. We wish that Lifestyle Business Australia was around then as we wouldn't have had any hesitation in listing.
